The Perfect Diet Of Food For Humans?

Boring and a bit 'German' I know, but has anyone ever published the perfect
diet for humans?

For example an almost scientific approach to the diet that would give the
human body the perfect amount of vitamins, proteins, amino acids, etc?

There is a lot of research on healthy nutrition, I'd recommend any
Western governement's recommendations, assuming you're in a western country.

I live by such rules and havent had a cold or a flu since (2 years).

Humans are genetically diverse, and as such, our needs differ amongst us.
What's the best for one may well be a poor diet for another.

I did not write that, I replied to it, with:

HTH.

One would think it would vary with gender and age and life stage and person,
e.g.,
- early teens have rapidly developing brains and need a higher fat
percentage diet than do adults ( brain tissue growth and fat-use-intake have
a statistical correspondence in several areas of study),
- male teens are growing bone and muscle at a high rate while at a
relatively low testosterone level (relative to males post-30) and need a lot
of protein in the diet to keep the lid on; as well as needing a high fat
percentage to develop muscle (e.g., polar bears, killer whales, and suckling
whales in general -those most muscled animals on the planet, live almost
exclusively on fat, most leaving the meat of their kills. Mammals with diets
high in fat are bigger and more muscled than those animals in the same
species with lower-fat-percentage diets.)
- Ever notice the fatten-up-then-growth-spurt-into-skinny cycle in kids?
They are in several cycles at once - different areas of the brain, different
muscles and bones, etc. with differing needs across the year or so cycles.
- nursing/pregnant mothers have different dietary needs than adult males

However, according to several recognized experts in the pro and college
ranks, as discussed in a forum format in a training magazine I have archived
around here somewhere, a forum which also covered the technical reasons for
those percentage, for most athletes and by extension most active adults:

the optimum protein-fat-carb mix of the daily calorie intake is around
15% protein, 30% fat, and 55% carbohydrates.
There was some discussion as to the protein-carb ratio (understandable
since football players use one kind of muscle tissue over others and
marathoners use the reverse), but all held that a minimum of 30% fat in an
active-muscle-subject's diet was necessary for optimum muscle performance.

Strangely enough, a Snickers bar has 15% protein, 30% fat, and 55%
carbohydrates.

Perfect ratio for most active adults. :)

Hey, it even has relatively even energy release.

But I'd bet most would get along OK on other reasonable ratios... Almond
Joy, for example

fwiw......

I had always been a fan of BOB, but I was only recently introduced to
the great Flying Spaghetti Monster. All hail.

No, I don't think so, Sarah. I'm waiting with anticipation for the
touch of the master, though.
